#TechEnthusiasts: Exploring Backstage

This page is about an experimental internal project at Devoteam, a.k.a. Project Unox. This project is an internal platform-as-a-product solution showcase intended to serve as a blueprint for building internal platforms. On this page we will discuss platform engineering, developer portals and golden paths, explore use cases, and share some challenges and lessons learnt working with Backstage and ArgoCD.

Amsterdam’s Tech Enthusiasts Meetup Group

In this Meetup Group, we keep things centered around anything Tech-related, from Azure, AWS, GCP, Open Source, OPA, Backstage, K8S, Cillium, APIs, and Data Mesh to discovering new technologies that are on the horizon. Sometimes the meetups will be light-talks and in other cases tech-demos or short hackathon sessions.

This Amsterdam tech Enthusiast Group is an initiative of Technology Consulting organization Devoteam but also offers other experts the opportunity to host a Meetup. If you have a cool idea, just let us know and we’ll help you out with organization, location, and more. As long as it has to do with cool techie stuff, we’re in!

Most Meetups will be physical and with food & drinks arranged. Education, fun, and expanding your tech-network are what these meetups are all about. What’s better than talking tech with like-minded people?
